I have long considered creating a breed of topical and timely “Infographic” that goes beyond the typical format you see all over the web – the infographic populated by elementary school-level shapes, washed-out primary colors, with humans represented by the asexual icons you see on the door of every public restroom.
My first effort – Stairway to 40 – was done to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Stairway to Heaven release. It landed on the websites of several Rock radio stations, was picked up by @GuyKawasaki (thanks to the awesome @AnnieColbert), and re-Tweeted/linked-to by over 50 kind folks of exceptional taste in the graphic arts (you can see it on the ‘music’ page on this site).
Here, I decided to tackle a topic that never gets old – NCAA Div-I coaches and their uncanny ability to:
- Make the same stupid mistakes previously perfected by countless other blind, arrogant, and blindly-arrogant big-time coaches,
- Egregiously violate the same small set of unambiguous common-sense NCAA rules, and
- Deny, deny, deny – in the face of rumor, on-line murmur, a growing Everest of evidence, and the inevitable Sports Illustrated Special-Collectable-School-Sanction-Securing-Double-Issue Expose´.
Let me know what you think… unless you’re a Penn State, Ohio State, Baylor, Indiana U, or Colorado alum. I already know what you think.
(Note: Obviously inspired by the Penn State Sandusky-shop-of-horrors, I didn’t include the on-going & growing Syracuse University abuse scandal. Look for that in my next, nearly complete project – The Periodic Table of NCAA Scandals.)
MORE TO COME, JUST WAIT AND SEE……..

Thanks. The NCAA… It’s a show that never ends. And where would the world of satire be without Ohio State? Look for my ‘Periodic Table of NCAA Scandals’ – inspired by the fact I couldn’t even come close to fitting all the noteworthy scandals into this piece.
Glad to visit this blog, keep it going.
Thanks for the visit & kind words. Tell friends, just getting started. I have to pay for my grandma’s operation with the ad revenue from this site… *sniff*
Vina, thanks – I’m new to WordPress, so let me look into this issue. Thanks for visiting. RC.
